Should Waisake Naholo have been yellow carded for taking out Liam Williams?

Tell that both eyes on the ball thing to Jared Payne when he was red carded for a similar incident on Alex Goode...

Should Waisake Naholo have been yellow carded for taking out Liam Williams?

On the high ball...

I'm not sure, I can see Williams being red carded and banned for one week for that reckless play...
Then again Naholo could have been red carded and banned as well...
Then again Williams looked like he was feigning injury on the way down as well, so I'd red card and ban him for that...

On the shoulder check..
Again, Williams threw his head back and fell to the ground in an "appeal" fashion, so I'd red card and ban him for that...
Naholo shoulder check was a bit silly, penalty only....

However all the above is purely speculation until I see the Dan Biggar cam... in fact, maybe just whatever Dan Biggar says....

England win in Melbourne to take first ever series victory in Australia

oh you're right regarding the points, that amount of possession should definitely have yielded far more points than it did.

Although a slightly different kettle of fish, Scotland went through a phase of getting on top of the on field battle at times, yet never converting it to points because of the inability to finish.

Hopefully for Australia they won't fall into that same funk...

Regarding the errors and possession stats, are they somewhat skewed? 24 errors to engs 10, just over double right? But with more than 3 times the possession you're bound to make more errors?? Just like I've never lost a game of aussie rules....why? Because I've never played it before....

Bok-lash earns South Africa an incredible comeback victory

I'd agree with your odds. Ireland will be battered and bruised and now the boks will have their tails up!

Ah yes, I totally forgot about that 2v1 penalty, it makes total sense to me that 2 penalties should go against the 1, however I guess in the eyes on the law Moores was the last penalty.

As for that block on Farrell, totally agree it was very soft, I don't think (Farley was it?) actually slowed Farrell, and Farrell got his moneys worth by sending the guy tumbling.

I tuned in to see Ireland leading a lot of points to 3 and though "eh, bloody hell" and thought Ireland must have it in the bag, went away, when I heard later they'd lost the game I couldn't believe it. I still don't know the ins and the outs of it, but what a shambles to give away a lead like that.

Well done SA, commiserations Ireland, bet both teams are itching to meet at the 3rd test!

Actually, anther thing that popped into my head. Nonu was clearly having a chuckle in the dressing room, but he was definitely KO'd on the field... do you think this was him trying to convince people he's fine?

He certainly comes across as the kind of candidate for trouble later on in life due to head clashes...
